Looking for any information on the 1996 Orange C16rs pictured, such as retail price, original spec and how many were made.
I have searched through Retrobike and the only one I can find is the original ad on here that I bought the bike from.
I know RS stands for Race Specials, but hoping for a bit more information as I believe the bike to be quite rare.
I have also contacted Orange Bikes for information, but hoping to find as much knowledge I can on here too.
I believe it would've originally had a clear Crud Catcher and a Cog Hog which I am on the lookout for if anyone has them for sale.

Thanks in advance, Karl.

Hi, nice bike.

In '97 Orange offered custom options on their bikes for groupsets/forks etc. They also offered 2 of their own custom specced bikes, the Pro and the RS. Info is here in the '97 catalogue ... ochure.pdf
